This is the time of year I tend to reflect and count my blessings. I’m so glad my ancestors came to Texas and as I result I live in the best state in the country.
I’m blessed to have found my dear husband all those years ago and blessed that our families have known one another for generations. I’m blessed with a gorgeous daughter who is an awesome mother and wife.
I’m blessed that God called me to become Catholic twenty-five years ago and blessed that He has given me so many talents and interests such as spinning, knitting, and weaving.
I’m thankful for a simple lifestyle and not feeling that there are things left undone in my life. I don’t regret leaving college to marry Brad. College was something to do until we could afford to get married. I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do, since I was a little girl.
Brad could never have done what he did with his career if I wasn’t at home doing what I do on a daily basis…and he thanks me for what I do almost every day. Audrey tells me often how thankful she is that I’m here when she needs me and I let her know how important it is to me that she and the children are here and not half-way across the country.
My life is blessed, fulfilled and very, very happy. I have my dear husband home every single day as opposed to spending my days, and many nights, alone due to his work. We get up when we like, enjoy spending time together and share many interests.
I can’t help but laugh when people talk about women who are ‘just’ housewives. That cracks me up. I stopped listening to people who want to diminish what others do a long time ago. I know my worth, my character and my abilities, all of it gifts from God.
I pray that you are as blessed as I am and that your Christmas holiday will be spent with those you love.
